One fellow each year participates in advanced training in knee, shoulder, elbow, hip, foot & ankle surgery. All areas of sports medicine are included with extensive experience in knee and shoulder management.

Fellows attend orthopaedic clinics, open and arthroscopic surgeries, participate in the clinic'€™s journal clubs, teaching conferences, anatomy labs, and industry sponsored workshops. They are expected to prepare publication-quality research. The fellow will operate at Pacific Heights Surgery Center, San Francisco Surgery Center, California Pacific Medical Center, and St. Mary'€™s Medical Center.

The fellow will have the opportunity to work closely with Dr. Eugene Wolf, a pioneer and inventor in knee and shoulder surgery. The fellow will participate in arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and focus on rotator cuff repair, shoulder stabilization, and ligamentous reconstruction. The open surgery focus is on complicated reconstructions and revision arthroplasty of the shoulder and knee. Anatomic and reverse arthroplasty of the shoulder and total and unicompartmental knee arthroplasty are well covered.

The fellow will work with Dr. James Chen who focuses on knee, shoulder, and elbow surgery. In the knee, focus is on primary and multiple revision cruciate ligament reconstruction, complex multi-ligamentous knee reconstruction, and meniscus transplantation. In the shoulder focus is on stabilization and biologic rotator cuff repair. The elbow focus is on open and arthroscopic procedures.

The fellow will gain experience in Foot & Ankle and Hip pathology with Dr. Edward Shin who focuses on arthroscopic surgery of the foot & ankle, hip, knee and shoulder. In the knee the focus is on cruciate reconstruction, meniscus preservation, and cartilage restoration. In the ankle the focus is on arthroscopic treatment of cartilage lesion. In the hip the focus is on arthroscopic treatment of femoral acetabular impingement.

The fellow will work with Dr. Neil Pathare who focuses on knee and shoulder surgery. In the knee, the focus is on anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and meniscus surgery. In the shoulder focus is on complex primary and revision surgery.

Team physician training will include experience on the sidelines for a semi-professional soccer team, high school football team and as a ringside physician.

The fellow receives an annual stipend, malpractice insurance, two weeks of vacation, and sponsorship at two continuing education/academic courses. This is an non-ACGME accredited program appropriate for a US-graduate who seeks further specialty training.
